wishlist series: blusher

I often get asked to recommend products that I use and love as it can be quite overwhelming when faced with so much choice, as I get to try lots of different products through my job, my clients trust me!

I have started a series to help you navigate your way through the 1000s of products out there and simplified it to 3 budget options: A Bit Spenny, In The Middle and Budget Babes.

Hopefully this no-nonense guide will help when you want to refresh items your makeup bag.

If there is anything you would like to see included in the Wishlist series, just get it touch!


Blusher is one of those products that can make a real difference to your look. It can be subtle or bold but it will transform your makeup regardless.

Without it, makeup can look a little flat. If you find the right shade, blusher adds a pop of life and warmth to the skin.

You can choose from various textures depending on your preference.

Traditionally blush comes in a compact powder form with either a matte, radiant or shimmery and sometimes glittery finish.


If you're opting for a matte finish, powders can be the best way to achieve this as the texture will add to the mattifying effect. You can find a totally matte blush without any shimmer or sheen for a real wash of colour.

Powders that are 'baked' usually have a very radiant glowing finish and due to their very fine texture can be incredibly sheer and shimmery.

Some powders come with an added glitz or glitter which give an extra bit of impact but work best in the evening.


are great if you want a very natural finish but a good colour payoff. These can be applied with fingers, a brush or a sponge. They can also be layered so if you want just the slightest hint of colour - a quick dot of liquid blended with a finger is all you'll need to do.

But if you're looking for more impact then you can literally layer over again once the first layer has dried. Liquids are also very long lasting as they literally set on to the skin. These can also be matte or shimmering.


formulas are again incredibly versatile, slightly thicker than a liquid they can also be applied to lips and sometimes eyes too for a gentle cohesive wash of colour on the face.

Best applied with fingers I like to dab and blend to build up a very natural sheen. These are a great product for touch ups on the go or when travelling because you don't need brushes and are multi-functional.

Do you have a product that you would like to me to focus on for the wishlist series?
